Such a good man! I worked with him at Chrysler for a good part of 32 years. Sad to hear but I am honored to have known he and his wife who I worked with at Piggly Wiggly

We are very sorry for your family’s loss. Always enjoyed visiting with your parents whenever we saw them in the store. Your Dad was just the same as he was when we all were in school.

Uncle Dave was my Godfather. He was the other half of my Uncle Dave and Aunt Lois. They made a great pair! I love you Uncle Dave and I am glad you are at peace!

I sure enjoyed the hugs I got from my lifelong buddy and classmate. I’m sure you are smiling again with Lois at your side. May you both feel happiness in being together again. You will both be forever missed.
